According to Senator John McCain, Russia is a bigger threat than the Islamic State with regard to “world security”, whatever that means. The seasoned war hawk and former Vietnam war hero (code-name Songbird by his fellow POWs) gave an exclusive interview on Monday during which he claimed, among other nutty things, that President Trump makes him nervous. But let’s take a plunge inside that old fountain of wisdom and quote the man himself:
“I think ISIS can do terrible things. But it’s the Russians who tried to destroy the fundamental of democracy and that is to change the outcome of an American election,” he said.
In this writer’s view, this man is truly senile. I mean, besides pedaling the fake narrative with the Russians hacking elections and all that nonsense, McCain says during the same interview, in the same breath so to speak that:
“I’ve seen no evidence they succeeded, but they tried and they are still trying to change elections. They just tried to affect the outcome of the French election. So I view Vladimir Putin — who has dismembered Ukraine, a sovereign nation, who is putting pressure on the Baltics — I view the Russians as the far greatest challenge that we have.”
At least he’s sincere, I must give him that. But it’s beyond my comprehension how could a “reputable” US Senator make such self-contradicting claims in the same interview. McCain now wants new sanctions on Russia for their attempt to change the outcome of the 2016 elections. There’s no proof, mind you, but we must impose sanctions, because feelings.
Also, President Trump makes McCain nervous, because reasons, check out the quote:
“I am nervous from time to time. I do believe that the President has great confidence in the national security team. I do believe most of the time that he accepts their advice and counsel.
Can I tell you that he does [that] all the time? No. Does it bother me? Yes, it bothers me.
President Trump should stop bothering this arch-neocon, right? So, just to clarify, lawless Islamic terrorists like ISIS and their derivatives who killed tens of thousands of people all over the world in the last 5 years in the name of their ideology, are not as dangerous as those pesky Russians who did exactly what?
This guy is getting increasingly ridiculous, as he may require a perspective transplant, if not something else. Russia has had sanctions against John McCain (and Obama) since March 20, 2014. Pretty smart folks if you ask me.
